firmware udate Quectel EG25-G modem
#1
Hi,
in https://gnulinux.ch/postmarketos-v22-06-veroeffentlicht
wrote Lioh Möller about the possibility of updating the firmware of the modem Quectel EG25-G.
I followed the instructions. There were no error messages. It now has the latest firmware version.
However, the modem does not work under postmarketOS. Only in Manjaro Phosh Beta 24 does it work if I toggle the "Mobile Data" switch on and off and on again under "Network".
The modem also does not work with Manjaro-ARM-plasma-mobile-dev-pinephone-20220613.
It's like an own goal.

did you flash stock rom https://github.com/Biktorgj/quectel_eg25_recovery or half-opensource https://github.com/Biktorgj/pinephone_modem_sdk ?

i still recommend re-initializing some settings even if modem says they are set. like volte:
Code:
AT+QMBNCFG="select","ROW_Generic_3GPP"
AT+QCFG="ims",1
AT+CFUN=1,1


in extreme situation use following, i don't think this works on "pinephone modem sdk" firmware.
Code:
!!warning!! only use these if modem chip is seriously messed up!
needs to be used as bundle
AT+QPRTPARA=3    << Factory reset NVM items (careful, you may lose modem control!)
AT+QPRTPARA=1    << Save NVM items
!!warning!!

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question because I worked exactly according to the instructions, just like in a cookbook:
https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Fwupd
My expertise would have to be a level higher to carry out your advice. It also has a bit to do with my age.
If you could translate your advice into some sort of building guide, it would certainly help me.
Many Thanks!

In your testing are there any missing functions with this firmware?  GPS, SMS, phonecalls, data?
